Max Domi is the first player on here who could make sense to be apart of the next successful team in Chicago. Domi is only 28 years old. Assuming the Hawks need two to three seasons before they are competitive again, Domi would be at most 32 by the time Chicago is winning. So the team could choose to give him a three of four year contract worth $3.5 or 4 million to give him a stable home and add a very competitive player to their team.
This was one of Domi’s best seasons this past year. While with the Blackhawks Domi has 49 points in 60 games while playing a career high 18 minutes a night on average. He is someone who Blackhawks fans embraced right away, and he could be a good pick to add back to the team this summer. He even had himself a pretty impressive trip to the Stanley Cup playoffs this spring putting up 13 points in 19 games with the Dallas Stars.
Domi would be a good winger to have in Chicago over the next few seasons. This upcoming year he could play alongside Connor Bedard and help usher him into the league. Domi is not the biggest guy on the ice, but he plays aggressive and finds a way to be a threat, while Bedard has a lot going for him, he also is not a bigger guy and could learn how to play in the NHL from a guy like Domi.
The next player on this list is another free agent who could help the Blackhawks out during their next successful team.
